Autonomous Vehicles & Driverless Cars

Innovation has been a driving force in the auto industry more than a century. While various technologies have made vehicles safer and easier to drive, the emergence of the self-driving vehicle is, perhaps, the single most major innovation to take hold of the auto industry since its inception.

Currently, various automakers and other major companies (like Google) are developing and testing autonomous vehicles. While industry experts expect about 10 million self-driving vehicles to be on U.S. roadways by 2020, they have also predicted that, by 2030, about 1 in every 4 cars on the road will be an autonomous vehicle.

It remains to be seen how the advent of autonomous vehicles will impact roadway travel and safety. Regardless, the lawyers at the Amaro Law Firm want you to know that we are here for you, ready to advocate your rights to recovery and justice, if you are harmed by a self-driving car (or any motor vehicle).

Autonomous cars are passenger vehicles equipped with various sensors and technologies that allow them to detect, navigate and respond to a driving environment without constant human input. Also referred to as driverless, self-driving or robotic cars, autonomous cars DO require a human to be in the driver’s seat and take control of the vehicle when certain conditions arise (like any conditions that the vehicle cannot interpret).
